About Trevor Wasson
I was born and grew up in Northern Ireland and, as a child, spent my holidays in the North Coast area. I was in the construction business in Belfast and currently live in the Newtownabbey area.
Trevor Wasson purchased this Cottage in 2006
Why Trevor Wasson chose Bushmills
As a child, my family spent holiday time in the North Coast Area. I married a Portstewart girl and we continued to holiday in this area with our young family. We purchased Larchfield new in 2006 and collected the keys on the Wednesday of Easter week. We installed the furniture we had purchased over the previous months in the next 36 hours, and our first Guests arrived from London on Good Friday! Larchfield is well constructed and well situated for our needs and those of our Guests.
What makes this Cottage unique
Larchfield has a rural aspect, is situated in a virtually traffic-free cul-de-sac, yet is within a few minutes walking distance of the hustle of Bushmills. also easy driving distance of fabulous areas of natural beauty. Larchfield and the surrounding area, is pet-friendly with lots of scenic walks nearby.

Very Nice and Roomy, Great Location
Location was superb. If you don't mind a 10-15 minute walk, there are great restaurants within walking distance. And it's a nice, easy little walk down the main street in Bushmills. This is also a great base for venturing out to Giant's Causeway, The Dark Hedges, the rope bridge, etc. And needless to say, the Old Bushmills Distillery is basically in the back yard - 5 minute walk. The apartment itself was very nice. Plenty of room to sit back and relax after a long day of sightseeing. Had a nice little peat and wood fire in the living room. Extensive directions were provided and care was taken to ensure you have everything you need for a very nice stay. We had dinner at Tartine the first night and then had dinner at The French Rooms followed by taking in live music at The Bushmills Inn the second night. It was all wonderful.
Close to everything!
This vrbo was near the Giant's Causeway, Bushmills, Carrick a rope bridge, Portrush, and Dunluce Castle. There are nearby stores. We were left a wonderful gift basket of breakfast goodies. The rental was clean, spacious, and comfortable. We would highly recommend.
Excellent accommodation Bushmills
Larchfield is an excellent property for a break in Bushmills. It is clean and very comfortable and offers a wide range of amenities as well as a lovely welcome pack. We would love to stay there again in the future.
Thank you for your 5* review. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay in Larchfield and you would love to return.
Please do, we would love to have you!!!
Larchfield is a cosy, comfortable and ideally located rental holiday property. Homely feel.
We both found Larchfield on a lovely quiet, small, very well kept estate on the edge of Bushmills. Seemingly most properties are holiday homes as most appeared unoccupied. The photograph doesnt do justice to the area the house is located. Away from the busy little centre but only a 5/10 minute walk to a local spar and 15/20 minutes into the centre of Bushmills. In the centre there are a good selection of cafes, pubs and gift and antique shops. Quite a busy little place.
Larchfield itself is a comfortable adequately applianced house. The lounge was cosy with a lovely open fire (logs supplied) The heating was easy to use along with all appliances.
The bed in the main bedroom was very comfortable and bedding towels of a good standard. Having the ensuite would make everything easier for families. However the ensuite shower remained cold so made use of it impossible. (Unless we missed an immersion switch, it was not obvious.) The electric shower in the main bathroom operated with low water pressure. So I would say this was our only slight niggle. Although the bathroom felt dated it was clean in terms of grout etc.
The garden is tidy and a modern clean design, a lovely area to sit out in the warmer months. Also an open view to the back towards Bushmills distillery. Which we would recommend as a good tour for about £9.
A welcome pack of food awaited our arrival which is always a lovely touch.
Due to the property accepting dogs and obviously holiday users abiding the rules as the house did not smell of animals and very clean, we would not hesitate in recommending Larchfield to other people for its location to all local attractions and a welcoming home from home feel.
Thank you Gail, for taking the trouble to review Larchfield. I noted your difficulty with the en-suite shower. The hot water for this comes from the oil fired boiler which is on a timer. There is a button clearly marked HW in the Utility Room which allows constant hot water 24/7 to the bath and en-suite shower. When this button is pressed a red light glows to show the availability of constant hot water.
This is clearly explained in the comprehensive Larchfield Handbook. This has never been an issue before or since.
We were in communication by text during your stay and it is a shame you didn’t mention this problem as I would have a) guided you on how to turn on the hot water or b) asked my Housekeeper next door to pop in and push the button for you.
Apart from that I am delighted you enjoyed your stay in Larchfield.
Lovely 3 BR house in a great location for sightseeing on the Antrim Coast.
This 3 bedroom house, with kitchen and living area was perfect for our family. Bread, eggs,coffee, tea, juice,cereal, butter and butter made breakfast easy and delicious for us. The beds were comfortable and the house quiet. Wood and peat provide for the fireplace, which we used. Our house had a view of Bushmills Distillery - take the tour, it is wonderful! The Giant's Causeway is a very short drive (or nice long walk in better weather). Also visited Dunluce Castle, Downhill Demesne, Carrick a Rede bridge, Torr Head, many little harbor towns - like Ballintoy, Dark Hedges. Great trip! Ate a wonderful dinner at Tartines at Distillers Arms!
Thank you Susan for such a glowing 5* review! It is always very rewarding when our Guests take the trouble to review Larchfield. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and used the extensive facilities in Larchfield, including our toe-toasting fire!
You certainly took in plenty of the sights on the North Coast (!) and I am pleased you enjoyed your meal in our ‘local’; Tartines.
You are welcome to return anytime. Trevor.
Great house with very convenient location to whole causeway coast.
The house was a good fit for four adults visiting Northern Ireland for the first time. Trevor was very accommodating to our needs and responded quickly to our questions.
I wouldn’t hesitate to refer friends to this property, knowing they’d be happy with the property location and amenities.
The quaint village of Bushmills, is just an hours' drive from Belfast International Airport or the ferry Port of Larne. Bushmills hosts great restaurants and pubs, some with evening music for the craic!
Coffee shops abound and there are craft shops aplenty, not forgetting the world-famous Old Bushmills Distillery a mere saunter away!
Just a short drive away, there is the World Heritage Site of the Giants Causeway. This can be reached by a beach walk, a cycle ride on closed paths or a scenic train journey above the beach.
This is an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with sandy beaches, magnificent sea views against a backdrop of natural undulating sand dunes.
The harbour at Portballintrae is used as a departure point in the summer for off-shore fishing, but there are other hidden harbours tucked away just ready to be explored or fished.
The Glens of Antrim can be reached by way of the Coast Road, a much heralded attraction in itself, rivalling the Ocean Road in Australia, with stunning views of the coast.
Sport is a great feature of the Bushmills area with superb golf courses within easy reach. Royal Portrush is just a few miles away and has been justifiably selected to host the 'Open' in 2 years time.
The 'North West 200 motorcycle road races are world renowned for speed and thrills, and are held in May of each year
